TMNT Arcade Game (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)

The year was 1989.  My middle school class was on a forced field trip to the local roller rink.  The music was loud, the room smelled of sweat and fog machine haze, and Sara, the cutest girl in school, had already long since forgotten that I existed.  So, I found refuge in every young nerd's sanctuary: the arcade.  Inside, I discovered one of the greatest games ever invented, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Sure, we'd seen the cartoon and pretended to like the incredibly difficult NES game, but here was a true masterpiece: 4-players at simultaneous play, semi-3D environments, and worthy of swallowing every quarter I owned.  

This model is my best approximation of the opening level, "Fire!," and comes in two configurations: Leonardo with a red Foot Soldier and Raphael being zapped by a Roadkill Rodney.
